Russia Stresses Closer Economic Ties with Iran
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Russian first deputy prime minister hailed the removal of anti-Iran sanctions and hoped for closer ties between Tehran and Moscow in various areas of economy.
In a meeting with Iran's visiting Minister of Communications and Information Technology Mahmoud Vaezi in Moscow, Igor Shuvalov described the termination of the economic embargoes against the Islamic republic as a “positive” move, saying that the issue has a great impact on the development of Iran-Russia relations.
The Russian deputy premier further said he hopes the level of economic ties between the two sides would match the level of political ties as underlined by the two countries’ leaders.
Vaezi, for his part, pointed to the extensive areas of bilateral relations between Tehran and Moscow, saying that the ties have entered a new stage and a brighter future awaits them.
The remarks come against the backdrop of a new wave of interest in ties with Iran after Tehran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) on July 14 reached a conclusion over the text of a comprehensive 159-page deal on Tehran's nuclear program.
The comprehensive nuclear deal between Iran and the six powers would terminate all nuclear-related sanctions imposed on Iran after coming into force.
Experts believe that Iran's economic growth would rise remarkably after the final nuclear deal takes effect.
